They could make it as the top 2 automatically qualifies & the third place still has options too. Germany is definitely gonna qualify, but the rest is quite open in that group. Ireland might be slightly the favourite to take the second place. Good luck Scotland! :).

Sorry, but Scotland chances are small.

Hahaha :lol: Sadly there are no world number 4 in the group but Germany are number 2 in the world so we might give them a game.

Back in the Euro 2008 qualifiers we also beat France twice 1-0. Who at the time we're World Cup runners up and close to the top of the world rankings. On the last game of qualifying that year we played Italy at Hampden and we're narrowly beaten 2-1 by a 91st minute goal from a free kick which was never a free kick. We finished 3rd in that group two points behind France.

In the Euro 2012 qualifiers we also came third in the group which included Spain. One of the best teams of all time. Narrowly missing out. A critical game was Czech Republic at Hampden with 4 games left we needed a win. We we're 2-1 up with minutes to go and Czech Republic we're awarded a penalty which was never a penalty and the rest they say is history. Another interesting fact from that group was Spain only conceded 6 goals in 8 games, 3 of those goals we're scored by Scotland. In a tight 3-2 loss at Hampden then a 3-1 away loss.

Don't even get me started on Euro 2004 :lol: What I'm trying to say is historically in qualifying for the Euro's we haven't been too bad in recent history.

For videos of what I was talking about... Euro 2012 vs Czech Republic (I must add moments after Czech Republic we we're denied a penalty) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TLZm5kNo6SI

Euro 2008 v Italy http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rQVpYvP4toc

Have a little watch and you'll see what I'm talking about. Still very painful to watch.

England should walk it. This should be the first qualification campaign of the next generation England team.

It was to be expected tbh, half of the team was injured and missing today. :wink:

Lewandowski slayed as usual and Bellarabi was a nice surprise, but apart from that this was a rather weak match.

Omg @Ireland! :o :lol:

Blah-blah-blah :lol:
I know, but still it's a big big surprise. At least, for me. We have a few popular players, but overall our team is a shit (#70)

@Ireland-Gibraltar
Poland has also won 7-0 with Gibraltar :wink:

With Germany losing Scotland's group is wide open just now!

I expect a Germay, Scotland, Poland 1,2,3 though! But it will be very close!

Wow that final stage was intense! Glad that my country Portugal scored in the last minute, although the last 30 minutes were very disappointing, no offensive actions whatsoever. :-?
Shocked about the Germany result, but glad for oasisbobo and Scotland that they are doing quite well in that group. :D A European Cup with Ireland and all of the UK would be cool, don't know if that ever happened.

Thank you! :D Would have liked the win but I cant complain with 2-2 away from home! :) I lose in 9 games which was to the world champions. Nice little run :) What a close group too! :D

I didn't know there was still so much hatred between these two countries. There are exception rules in the groups like Armenia are not able to play in a group with Azerbaijan, Georgia not with Russia,etc. I don't get why the same thing doesn't exist for Serbia and Albania? If there is such a risk, then they shouldn't play against each other, simple as that.

Of course there is, they are taking part of our country, our people are trapped in Kosovo etc.

But yes there should be, they hate us, i mean drone with their flag and criminals on it? Seriously. I am in shock

Btw there are rumours saying that an Albanian player was talking to his family on the phone, explaining that his teammates were striked by the Serbian police and security, and that there were Serbian fans throwing chairs and bottles at the Albanian players.
